A Round Up Of Warm Winter Smoothies

Anyone else finding those summer-lovin’ infusions of fruit, super foods and sweet blended ice a little harsh on the (already) frostbitten brain? I’ll be the last to admit it but smoothies in winter are more ‘torture’ than ‘treat’. A FEW THINGS TO CONSIDER The Tao of Smoothies: Balancing Yin and Yang In the (Yin) season of winter it’s best to tuck into warm and hot (Yang) foods and bevies.Why? Because they stimulate the vital organs and generate body heat. Avoid Extra Icy for Optimal Digestion This Winter: According to Daniel Reid, author [...]

Embodied Flow with Tara and Scott

Here is my latest piece for Australian Yoga Journal. It peaks behind the curtain of Embodied Flow, a mind-dazzling teacher training I had the incredible honour of attending earlier this year. +++ I can’t say when it happens exactly, that’s the mysterious thing. One moment I'm here, encompassed by flesh and bone. And the next, there’s a pixilation of space / my density turning to effervescent vapour / every sub-atomic particle articulated in a vibration that is strangely visible. I can sense my skin - so permeable, the [...]

Drop and Give Me Zen: The Art of Mindful Movement Series

‘I’d like to learn how to meditate. I know it’d be good for me, but I can’t sit still for more than 2 minutes.” - Most People I Know There’s a common misconception that meditation is a fixed formula – complete with it’s own non negotiable position (spine erect, legs in lotus) and associated paraphernalia (mudras, mala beads and meditation pillows). Nonsense. There are as many ways to meditate as there are ways to workout. Now, it goes without saying i'm a big fan of the sitting-still-with-hands-in-mudra variety of meditation. But, [...]

May I re-mind you: your potential is completely negotiable

"Who am I to call myself an artist / a writer / a yoga instructor / a personal trainer / or anything for that matter? Who am I to own my intelligence. To be fierce. And bold. And brilliant AF!?" This chronic questioning, this sense of inadequacy of somehow falling short is common ground on which we all meet. I hear it in clients, I hear it at sister circle, I hear it in my own head.  It’s part of the human condition and why wouldn’t it be. We are a conglomerations of contradictions - [...]

The Secret Stories Our Bodies Tell: Rewriting The Psychosomatic Script

Your body is miraculous, mysterious, intelligent beyond your wildest dreams. It pulses with molten wisdom and stories as old as stars. It was present for every experience of your life and embodies emotional imprints of these events. Answers to lifelong questions are steeped in cells, tucked in the folds of tissue and buried in bone marrow. ‘There is more wisdom in your body than in your deepest philosophy.’ Nietzsche You just have to ask the right questions, lean in and listen. YOUR BIOGRAPHY BECOMES YOUR BIOLOGY  The body, like everything else in life, is [...]

Transcendental Training Template: Workout Enhancement

Ever experienced fitness fatigue? Your usual exercise of choice has lost its pizzazz (or never had any in the first place). You’re feeling flat, physically bleh (bloated, puffy, weak) and you're tired of trainers banging on about reps, intervals, calories and measurements? Ahuh, I can practically feel you nodding through the screen. The secret to turning a fitness fling into a forever-love is this. Replace "routine" with "self renewing rituals". What’s the difference between a routine and a ritual? As Gretchen Rubin says: “A 'routine' is a string of habits, and a 'ritual' is [...]

Sonic Goodness: Chakra Balancing Sound Meditation

"Music that melts the separate parts of your body together." Anais Nin Back in my festival fiend days (a past life ago now) you'd find me two-steppin' round the dance-floor boom boxes. I got off on feeling the kick-drum in my chest, my whole body amped and electric with sympathetic vibration - fuzzy frissons from head to toe. These days i'm a lot more savvy and 'self-lovey' about what I expose my more delicate organs to. Progressive house and ear-drum-damaging-doof have made way for pure sound waves that replenish my body [...]
